The Ipswich Journal – 10th February 1900 – A ROWDY TRIO – At Ipswich Police Court, Ernest G. Brunning, of 113, Woodhouse Street; Robert Irving, of 22, Wells Street; and Charles Newson, of 20, Pottery Street, were before Col. J.H. Josselyn (chairman), Mr. J. May, Mr. S.R. Anness, and Mr. R.D. Fraser, charged with wilfully obstructing the pathway on Monday evening. Sergeant Johnson saw the defendants coming along the path in Westgate Street with their arms around each other, and their “heads down.” They turned everybody off the path, or rather everybody had to get off. When they reached the Cornhill Sergeant Johnson requested them to get into the road. Charles Newson and Robert Irving who were the worse for drink, did so, but Ernest Brunning would not. They walked towards St. Helen’s, where Sergeant Johnson saw them “go swop into three young women,” who made no complaint. The obstructing trio then adjourned to the County Hotel, where Sergeant Johnson followed them and obtained their names and addresses. Each defendant was fined 10s., with costs 16s., or 14 days.
